DID YOU HAVE TO MAKE THE FAIRINGS LONGER THAN ON THE PLAN? WHEN I CUT MINE FROM THE PLAN LAST NIGHT THEY DIDN'T GO THE WIDTH OF THE WING LIKE YOUR PICTURE

No, I cut mine exactly as copys on thick paper. I have no idea why yours would be narrower, except for maybe looks are decieving. The fairing are at about a 45* angle and "curved". This would make for a wider look in a picture.

I WAS TRYING TO SAY THEY DIDN'T SEEM TO GO FROM LEADING EDGE TO TRAILING EDGE LIKE YOURS. IF I PLACE THE TRAILING EDGE AS YOURS IS, THEY SEEM ALITTLE SHORT AT THE LEADING EDGE. MAYBE ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE SENIOR MOMENTS???????

It's not a Senior Moment, it's why you always make patterns before you glue anything in place. These things are not easy.

Well luckily I have learned the fit before gluing lesson. The bond paper I'm using may be the wrong thickness to hold that curve near the leading edge without wrinkling or poping away from the fuse. I'll keep fiddling.
